The American Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist at least once a year to get a routine examination and cleaning. If you have a history of periodontal disease, you should get your teeth cleaned more often in order to prevent the recurrence of infections or disease.
A professional teeth cleaning is generally done by the hygienist at a dentist’s office. The hygienist uses tools to remove tartar from your teeth — both above and below where the gum meets the tooth.
During a routine Scale and Polish at Brad Green Dentistry, our hygienist will thoroughly clean all deposits and stains from your teeth. We will scale away tartar build-up from tooth surfaces and polish your teeth to a beautiful shine.
